A creative carnival curiosity

BoomTown Fair is an eclectic, multi-genre music festival in the UK. Unrivalled in its originality and diversity, the festival brings together reggae, ska, folk, grime, garage, house, jungle, drum & bass,  electro-swing and more for an unapologetically bonkers four days of partying. 

Boundless creativity transforms an unassuming area of the English countryside into a phenomenal alternative world, creating a temporary city and civilisation complete with districts (and inhabitants therein) that each have their own unique character and musical environment; be it the reggae of Trenchtown, the bass-heavy Sector 6, or the gypsy-folk of the Old Town.   

Each year a fantastical new chapter is written in the history one of the most experimental and imaginative festivals in the world.

For one weekend a year, this quiet and serene corner of the English countryside becomes a fantasy-land, as BoomTown's pop-up city rolls onto its fields with awesome architecture, an abundance of performers, and an immense lineup.

The closest airport is Southampton, although London Gatwick is also a good option.

The festival puts on shuttle buses from Winchester train station, which is less than 10 minutes away.

Yes, very much so! The city's KidzTown area is dedicated to "mini Boomers"  and there is also a family camping area.
